THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE SMILE BEAUTY
CANNOT THRIVE ON GLOOM
BY LILLIAN B. THOMPSON
Youth and beauty are two treas
ures that every woman prizes.
- Nothing will chase both of them
- away quicker than a gloomy disposi
tion. If a woman would keep her youth
and beauty it is folly for her to yield
to the blues and foolish' mental states
that are bitter enemies of all that is
young and beautiful.
Smiling real smiles, not painful,
unwilling imitations of a smile, will
do more to help women retain -their
youth and beauty than all the lotions
in the world. A woman is bound fo
grow old some day, my skeptic
friends tell me in arguing against my
smile theories. Certainly. We must
all grow old in time. But haven't you
noticed a cheery-faced, white-haired
old lady with a smile that comes
from her heart? And didn't you
think she looked young and beautiful
in spite of her years? One can be
old and still look, young. Age, of
course, changes the lines pf youth,
but the beauty in women 'and that
cheery expression" of the face, which
is a sign of perpetual youth, will al
ways remain if they will only learn
the psychology of the smile.
In the Sunday magazines of the
newspapers one reads of a multitude
of schemes used by women to devel
op and retain beauty. Some take
milk baths, others use champagne in
their tubs, while many find comfort
in a vast array of beauty lotions,
creams, dyes and all that sort of
thing. -
I care not for artificial aids to beau
ty. My smile suits me. Instead of
indulging in some patent beauty
remedy in the mornings. I simply
smile. If I feel rather out of sorts
when I awake I go through a series
of smiling exercises which I have de
veloped for my own use. Sometimes
I must confess I don't feel like smil
ing just at the beginning of the day,
but I keep at it and sooner or later
I find that Lam returning to my nor
mal, cheerful self. Smile medicine
is all that I have ever use"d to keep
whatever of beauty I may have.
I want to impress this fact on the
women and girl who read these sto
ries. Anger and gloom distort the
face and destroy youth and beauty.
Smiles have the opposite effect. The
face that is always smily may have
a few wrinkles around the eyes, but
the effect takes nothing away from
beauty, while the frown lines bring
on ugliness. Frowns are the expres
sion of an ugly disposition and nat
urally paint a similar picture on the
face.
No girl can hope to be good look
ing who weakly gives way to fits of
the blues, disappointments and all
the ills that one meets up with in life.
Don't do it It's not worth while.
Life's too short. You'll keep your
good looks and- attractiveness a
workable asset if you practice your
smiles and forget to frown.
In my next story I am going to tell
you about the BUSINESS SMILE, v

FASHION FRILLS FOR JUNE DAYS
By Betty Brown
Felt hats come with the- roses now
instead of .with the snowflakes. The
felt hat of June is summery, in mus
tard color, citron or some other yel
low tint and looks smart a-top a
tailored frock of crash or pongee.
The taffeta gown puts on summer
airs with sleeves of sheer white or
gandy. There is an organdy under
waist with cuffs and collars as well as
sleeves. The gown is cut with deep
armholes, which give it a cool, sleve
armholes, which give it a" cool,
sleeveless effect '
Organdy accessories vests, col
lars, cuffs are marks of modish
ness. There's scarcely a silk or cloth
gown seen without some "fixings" of
cool, crisp organdy.
